August Cover: Sacred Beauty

Pushing the boundaries of earth-friendly technology, All-Nutrient formulates green products that nourish, protect and revitalize hair. To create a full range of shampoos, conditioners and styling products, chemists start with an organic base of certified organic oils and natural extracts to yield gentle, yet effective, results. What’s more, all natural ingredients like sunflower seed oil, avocado oil, grape seed oil and vitamin E are free of sulfates or any synthetic ingredients that can strip the hair and compromise color. The family-owned company also offers a line of permanent and demi-permanent hair color that’s safe to use and easy to formulate. On these pages, members of the All-Nutrient Design Team, Vince Smith, William Whatley and Trent Day, present a portfolio of versatile looks.

Shot on location at The Sacred Space where Jack and Rose Herschorn have created a meditative environment in which to relax and reflect or shop their collection of Buddhas, Asian relics, deities, crystals, jewelry and other treasures that offer a transformative experience for the spiritual traveler.
William Whatley of Body Spa Salons, Las Vegas, worked All-Nutrient Name This Stuff (the cumulative keratin effect seals split ends) through the hair before flat-ironing it. To create a luminous gloss, he applied Shine+ Gloss Mist, infusing each strand with moisture-rich lipids for the perfect finish. On her nails: CND Vinylux Winter Glow with Creative Play Tutu Be Or Not To Be on top.
Trent Day, owner of Salon Roxy in Valrico, FL, created a halo braid—think Sienna Miller’s Oscar-worthy ‘do a few years ago—using some of Bailey’s own hair and a weft of baby blonde hair for contrast. All-Nutrient Ultra+ Hold Hair Spray locked in texture and shine. On her nails: CND Vinylux Winter Glow. Bailey is wearing antique Afghan earrings embellished with pearls and coral from Tibet, available at The Sacred Space.
Vince Smith, owner of Hair Experience in Battery Park City, NY, worked All-Nutrient Shine+ Serum through the hair to add body, repair split ends and control frizz. Next, he applied Name This Stuff, a thermal protectant spray that decreases drying time, to each section before using a ½-inch curling iron to set the hair. After the set cooled, Smith used his fingers to create what he calls a “very organic, very big open texture.” On her nails: CND Vinylux Winter Glow. Julia is wearing a Dadar Oaaberu silk kurta handmade in India and embroidered with shells, beads and sequins, available at The Sacred Space.
To work a nice amount of body into Kloey’s hair, William Whatley cocktailed All-Nutrient Rhapsody Freeze Spray to create texture and shine and Shine+ Flat Iron Spray to nourish and seal the hair shaft with vitamins and natural oils. Then he barrel-curled the hair before brushing it out into loose waves.
